I discovered this verse when I was a teenager. It was such a comfort to me then, as it has been many times throughout the years since then.It’s amazing how quickly anxious thoughts can multiply if we don’t put our foot down and nix them right away.
We open the door and let them in, so often, because we want to figure it out on our own. Instead we need to tell those thoughts that they are not welcome here and shut the door on them because we KNOW that our Father in Heaven has it all figured out.
He loves us and is able to take care of the problem.
If those thoughts keep knocking at the door, go call your heavenly Father and ask Him to send them away!If Jesus is strong enough to calm the real winds and waves, is He not also able to calm the winds of circumstance and the waves of anxiety and fear?
Here’s another passage that has been a comfort to me for a long time. See if you catch the words that pertain to current events.
Today I’m thankful for the comfort that God gives us through His Word!
I’m thankful that we can trust His word because He is ALWAYS Faithful and True!
I’m thankful that He is a Refuge to all those who put their trust in Him!
